I am a Primary School teacher with over 40 years of experience as a classroom teacher, Reading Recovery specialist and Speech Trained Assistant. I am an enthusiastic and experienced teacher dedicated to improving the learning of all students to their greatest potential.
Having taught all year levels throughout my career, I specialise in Mathematics and English, as well as diagnosing and equipping students with techniques to overcome learning challenges. As I am aware that all students learn differently, I provide a wide range of opportunities for children to tackle individual goals and strive toward personal achievements.
I offer structured lessons designed to allow students to gain knowledge and practise skills, including those required for scholarship and select entry tests.
